far for republicans, and especially house republicans. but i'd love for us to find a way to seize the momentum to at least restore the assault weapons ban and the ban on high-capacity magazines. >> if you look at the raw numbers they've changed quite a bit. this is a nbc "washington post" poll. 54% favor stricter gun control laws and 59% support banning high-capacity magazines. we heard from joe manchin and joe warner, both with a-ratings with the nra. to ruth's point, chris, is there a chance that republicans could help to move them as well? >> well, i think so. i think we have seen that on the fiscal cliff issue. and the feeling here at the capitol, i've put the question to them and said, if gabby giffords, a congresswoman one of your own was almost fatally shot, and congress didn't react on gun control, what has to happen after this new event? this has changed the tenor. i was talking to a democratic leadership aide to made that point and also made the point when you have harry reid, if you remember in 2010, a tough re-election. the nra king just short of stopping him saying he

plan seems it's taking shape. the deal to stop us from going over the fiscal cliff. speaker boehner and the preside president at the white house. now, the president supports raising taxes on people earning more than $400,000 a year. i want to bring in "washington post" columnist ruth marcus and the national journalist chris freisz. there's a lot owing on, assault weapons ban and the gun show loophole. do you think they're going to take this, how are they likely to approach this? >> well, i think the vice president say very good choice to lead this because of course he was the chairman of the senate judiciary where this legislation goes through for many years. and so he understands a little bit of what's politically possible or, let's cross our fingers, what might hopefully be politically possible in the aftermath of the tragedy. i think one thing that's really important is to seize the moment. we have this tendency to lose our zeal and to let things slide. and i think -- i wish i could suggest that we would tie the cliff to gun control legislation. i think that's a bridge too far fo

for the associated press, liz. thanks for being with us. does this time feel different to you? >> yes. i thought the president's remarks last night were significantly different from what we've heard from him and from his predecessors over the last couple decades whenever we had school shootings, shopping mall shootings, theater shootings because there's been the assumption of a kind of ritual until now, where there would be shock, there would be asking what went wrong, the effects on the families. the president or governor leading the nation in some sort of commemoration, but then the certain knowledge that nothing was going to change. last night, the president saying he was going to use whatever power his office held to try to make sure this didn't happen in the same way. to me, that was a turn. >> liz, we heard dianne feinstein on "meet the press" saying she was going to revive the assault weapons ban. listen to senator joe manchin who has a rating of "a" with the nra. >> everything has to be on the table and i think it will be. when you look at it, if dianne is saying assault weapons, i don't

>>> good morning. i'm chris jansing. the chances for getting a big deal to stop us from going over the fiscal cliff aren't looking very good right now. >> there's no trust between both sides here. >> these talks right now are going absolutely nowhere. >> it's almost unimaginable to me that they'll get a deal between the leadership and the white house and it will pass the first time. >> top white house official told me the lines of communication are open between the president and house speaker john boehner, but no one is using them. >> today speaker boehner will put his plan b up for a vote. that bill extends the bush tax cuts for everyone making under $1 million. >> then the president will have a decision to make. he can call on the senate democrats to pass that bill or he can be responsible for the largest tax increase in american history. >> to sweeten the deal for house republicans they'll vote on another bill for the automatic defense cuts and cut an additional $200 billion over the next ten years. let me bring in molly ball and washington post correspondent. dana, the presiden

that. >> why was it you what sunday morning, of all the people in government, why the u.s. ambassador to the united nations answering questions about the attack on benghazi. >> it wasn'ta unusual, i have done sunday shows many times in the past. secretary clinton had originally been asked by most of the networks to go on. she had had an incredibly grueling week dealing with the protests around the middle east and north africa that it envol lopped our embassy. she consoled the whole state department and greet the families and the boths. she declined to do it. and i was asked by the who is if i would do it, as the next senior american diplomat. >> would it have been a whole different thing if hillary clinton had done those shows that day or would there still have been a fight over susan rice? >> we can't know, it's impossible to know if something else would have come up and she would have found herself answering for this controversy in other ways. i do think that we saw when susan rice went to capitol hill and attempted to make peace, not only with the senators who seemed set against he

plans over and over again, the democrats used to support and now they won't. i don't want taxes to go up. republicans don't want taxes to go up. we only run the house. democrats continue to run washington. what the president has proposed so far simply won't do anything to solve our spending problem. he wants more spending and more tax hikes that will hurt our economy and he simply won't deal honestly with entitlement reform and the big issues facing our country. we need significant spending cuts and real tax reform to address our long-term debt problem and pave the way for long-term growth and real growth in jobs in our country. we'll continue to work with our colleagues in the house and the senate on a plan that protects families and small businesses from the fiscal cliff. >> i think we saw last night yet the next chapter in this saga of trying to resolve the situation of the fiscal cliff. it is clear that our conference has been consistent in its commitment to doing something about the spending problem in washington and the mounting debt that has resulted. we stand ready to continue in

't agree, or is he using this for leverage to cut a better deal than the $400,000 the president is offering? regardless, right now, it seems like there is still chance for them to work together. especially after the tragedy at sandy hook elementary. >> to the extent that an event like that, as tragic as it is, brings us a little closer together, both in the nation and in washington, that would be a good thing. >> i continue to have hope that we can reach an agreement. it's not a time to put americans through more stress. >> later this morning, president obama will officially announce that like vice president biden will take charge of an effort to-like at policy in the wake of the murder of 20 children and 6 women in newtown, connecticut. i want to bring in "usa today" washington bureau chief susan page and for "the chicago sun times," lynn swede. good morning. let me start with the fiscal cliff, pause because we only ha days left. harry reid declared boehner's plan doa. let me play what he said. >> every time we get down to getting something for the long-term financial security of this coun
